An Absolute Choice!
If Luke the evangelist was trying to find a good way of geffing our attention, he couldn’t have done better than today’s gospel. “Unless a man HATES his father and mother... he cannot be my disciple.”
Wow. Fortunately, Matthew 10:37 helps us understand. “Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me...”
Our challenge is puffing God first. As I think about it, the more I can put Him first, the more likely I will be able to love others because I will be choosing them as He would, ...and does!
